This time last year, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation warned of a grim potential side effect from the COVID-19 pandemic: its disruptions to routine medical care could erase 25 years of progress on childhood vaccination, setting back global health by decades. The 2021 installment of the foundation’s annual Goalkeepers report, which details progress on 18 metrics related to global health, equity and sustainability, contains some good news and some bad news.

AbstractVaccine-associated enhanced disease (VAED) is a serious barrier to attaining successful virus vaccines in human and veterinary medicine. VAED occurs as two different immunopathologies, antibody-dependent enhancement (ADE) and vaccine-associated hypersensitivity (VAH). ADE contributes to the pathology of disease caused by four dengue viruses (DENV) through control of the intensity of cellular infection. Products of virus-infected cells are toxic. A partially protective yellow fever chimeric tetravalent DENV vaccine sensitized seronegative children to ADE breakthrough infections. A live-attenuated tetravalent whole v...
